Age categories include: 6-7, 8-10, 11-12, 13-14, and 15-17.  

 

Youth ages 6-17 have the opportunity to launch their very own startup business.  They create a product or service, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at this one-day marketplace.  Originally started in Austin, Texas, the Acton Children's Business Fair (ACBF) has grown to cities including Chicago, Phoenix, Grand Rapids, Dallas, and Los Angeles and now Richmond!  All entries will automatically be entered into the business competition. Booths will be judged in three categories: most original business idea, highest business potential, and best presentation/creativity. 


There will be a $20 entry fee per business. Cash prizes of $50 per category and age group (to be split among the business owners) will be presented at the conclusion of the fair.
